Today’s video blog comes to you from my layover in the Pheonix Airport ( cause I missed my early morning flight :))
The video is about a profound realization I had last week on my birthday and it will help you be more receptive, more feminine, and more irresistible.
As I sat scrolling down the computer screen reading and taking in all 146 Happy Birthday posts on my facebook wall last Thursday, I started to feel uncomfortable.
I wanted to rush through them. I wanted to just get it over with. Interesting reaction for something that seems so celebratory ay?
Each year, on my birthday, facebook notes come pouring in and every year I tend to briefly look at them with the energetic equivalent of a shoulder shrug and a big ass “eh”.
This year, I noticed that and I thought “WTF am I doing?”
You see over the past several months I’ve sincerely become aware of the value of receiving myself and how much I’ve not really taken the time to cultivate this skill within myself.
The consequences of habitual seeking, reaching for the next thing, attaching my self worth and confidence to how much money I have, how successful my business is, what men thought of me, what everyone thought of me, left me feeling empty, depressed, hopeless, powerless, and deep in fear for several months.
Learning to RECEIVE YOURSELF is a huge piece of becoming a radiant, powerful, irresistible, woman.
So I made a short video to share with you what the heck receiving yourself even means and how you can apply it to your life, plus I hope my story will be a great example for you.
As a BONUS for this week, I’ve also included a live recording from my Art of Feminine Presence Class, it’s a lesson and play along feel-a-tation.
You know what to do… leave me a comment, let me know how you feel about this, what insight you gained!!
(who’s they? I dunno, but it’s what my ex boyfriend told me all his ex girlfriends said about how at 27 all of sudden their butts went from tight and plump to WTF just happened??)
I say that 27 is the year that I get everyone to post a ‘Dance like No one’s watching’ video on you tube as a birthday gift to me and an awesome way to win FREE stuff with me.
It’s also the year I’ll be moving to California, the year my entire business changed into something that is even MORE me, and the year that I really let my true genius and voice out without apology.

50% off Authentic Presentations that Sell!
Presenting has been the way that I make about 75-90% of my income and position myself as a leader and expert in what I do. What I realized at some point was that it wasn’t enough just to be good at presenting, I needed to be GREAT at it AND also know how to deliver a clean offer or sale at the front of the room.
I spent a fair amount of time perfecting the flow of selling my stuff and sharing my juju in a presentation, and I’ve taught many students how to close the room in an AUTHENTIC WAY.
Authentic Presentations that Sell is all about helping you design and deliver a presentation with a lot of presence that will help you sell your products or services and have you feeling authentic and powerful at the same time.
It has 5 Training Modules with video training and content
Module 1: A Story that Sells
Module 2: An Offer that Sells
Module 3: The Whole Shebang: Intros, Body, and Titles
Module 4: Personal Presence and Presentation Delivery ( in person and on video)

In Module 3, you’ll learn how to use the natural rhythms, cycles, and energy of your body to your advantage so that you can get over your fears faster, increase your level of joy, income, and abundance, and stop forcing life to happen; let go of the struggle!

When I was in LA a few weeks ago, I fell in love. So I’m coming back to TEACH!!!
I fell in love with Venice Beach, I fell in love with the vortex of energy, the green juice on every corner, all the women wearing fedoras and other cool looking hats, and the ocean staring right in my face all the time.
So when my friend Jordanna Eyre, Badass Award winning life coach, whom I met first while teaching the Portland Art of Feminine Presence teacher training, said to me “Lauren, I’ve been thinking about how to get you out here more often, there’s this Women leadership retreat you really need to be at in June in San Diego.” I said YES and then I thought, how can I fund my trip back to Cali?
And that’s how our collaboration, SuperWomen Re-Defined was born. What was going to be a simple Art of Feminine Presence evening soon turned into something even more exciting!
Jordanna and I talked for hours and realized we have a similar passion and vision for supporting women who are here to create something big in the world but often feel stuck by that nagging empty, not enough feeling, so we decided to join forces to bring you an evening experience full of my Art of Feminine Presence Genius and her Genius in taking your understanding of emotional processing, what it means to be a ‘whole’ and self sourced woman, and how to express your self in a way that is aligned with what you really want to the next level.
This weekend we got on skype (for three hours while we tried to figure out how to get the best connection… ooooh technology) and made a short and funny video for you about our inspiration for this event.
You have a Superwoman inside of you, this much we know.
But what happens when you try to take on the world without connection to your Feminine Body + Soul, your true vision of success, and without support?

I decided to take a spontaneous trip to LA to visit friends and family and it’s a huge desire of mine to connect with some amazing women while I’m there!
Having the freedom in my life to makes these sorts of trips has been a huge driver of what I create and how I choose to do my work in the world.
Over the last few months I’ve been delving more deeply into clarifying who I am, what I desire, what is important to me and how I want to live and BE in the world, and my world has shifted a LOT.
In all this discovery, I’ve realized that one of my big passions is to be an example of possibility; limitless possibility. Everything that I do serves my souls desire to know for myself (like really know in my bones) that anything… ANYTHING… is possible.
And I feel ready to start sharing more of what I’ve learned from my own experiences in making some huge jumps in soul growth, inner confidence, self love, and courage over the last 6 months.
Here’s a few things that have shifted for me:
*I feel MORE connected to my inner knowing, my inner teacher and grasp less for something outside of me for comfort, security, and answers. (meaning, my sense of confidence has become something I’ve never experienced before… more meaningful, more deep, more certain)
*I worry about 80% less than I did before and the powerlessness I felt when my mind would start going into attack mode has significantly faded.
*My sense of self worth is increasingly becoming less and less connected to what I achieve, what my man thinks of me or what other people think of me
* I wake up in the morning feeling happy and optimistic about my day
* I’ve allowed myself to TRULEY experience rest ( and before I had no idea that I had no idea what real rest was)
*I manifested a relationship with a man who loves me without conditions (truley), sees me beyond what I can see in myself, and inspires me to be that in every moment
* I seek approval from others a WHOLE lot less and am experiencing the simplicity of when I just be myself, everything in my world gets better and so it does for those around me
So I’d love to SHARE with you my stories, my favorite Art of Feminine Presence tools, Badass Bizchick wisdom, and basically the HOW of how I have reached this place in my life of SENSUAL FREEDOM and how you can TOO.
If you’d like to help organize a gathering of women, large or small, please email me ASAP. I’ll be in LA tomorrow through Monday.
You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you have a group that you host, a house/space you’d like to host some friends or clients and have me speak and give you an experience you will never forget, let’s chat!
I am committed to bringing you my enthusiasm, charisma, and miracle working skills to your peeps.
This is also an amazing opportunity to get a taster of The Art of Feminine Presence if you’ve been thinking about attending a weekend intensive or Teacher Training (for those who want to make some money, add to your toolset and join the sisterhood), I’ll be sharing some details about how to get involved in that.
I’m looking forward to connecting with you!
PS. If you want to meet up to connect about how to work with me, spend some time ( or a whole immersion day) with me, collaborating, you know just being more awesome, hit me up too!
I made the decision to stay an extra day in Orlando to take my inner child to Harry Potter Land with a twinge in my belly saying ” Can I pay for all this? Where will I stay? I can’t take monday off, I have things to do, I’m already taking time off to be here at this event.”
I wasn’t sure about anything except the desire I felt inside to stay, play, and give myself the experience of immersing myself, SOLO, at a theme park, giving my inner child full reign to call the shots.
So when I arrived at Universal’s Islands of Adventure on Monday morning, first I felt excited, and then I started to feel lonely. I wanted to leave, I wanted a friend, I wanted to feel comfort, secure, safe.
So after wandering around the entire park feeling lonely, I found myself in the chair getting my face painted like a ‘benevolent dragon’ (ala the most hilarious video I’ve seen on funny or die) and when I got out, I found myself NERVOUS. I didn’t want anyone to notice me.
Which was kinda funny, given that I just had a freakin’ butterfly looking thing painted all over my face.
I was embarrassed. I went to the bathroom immediately and contemplated washing it all off when I realized something:
This is the VERY pattern that has me ( at times) and other women not putting our voices and our message out there, it’s the thing that stops us dead in our tracks.
FEAR OF BEING SEEN.
So I walked out of the bathroom with my head held high, my heart soft and open, my attention home inside my pelvic bowl, and a strong feminine lauren-style walk, and from that moment on, my day was nothing but perfection and magic.
This is what I do best, immersing myself in the world and learning my lessons from my life.
And I made a short video for you about what I realized and how you can apply it to YOUR life and business so that you can start to come out of hiding.
You might be hiding on your website ( ahem… have you announced to anyone that you are taking clients yet?), you might be hiding in your community (ahhhhhh, what about that desire you have for speaking and leading others?) or you might be hiding the parts of you that are aching to be expressed now that you’ve done so much inner work.
Watch this video and let me know how you’re going to start committing to coming out of hiding… FOR YOU, not anyone else.
Because as I heard this weekend: It’s hard to spread your message, make money, and make an impact AND be hiding at the same time.
The last thing I can say I learned is that sometimes, actually for me, most times my best ideas come from the inner kid inside me and it’s interesting how often I judge her choices or snuff her out. I remember feeling an immediate “UGH, why did I listen to YOU and get my face painted anyhow!!” after I finished because now I had to ‘deal with it’.
And the truth is, it’s not my inner ‘lil one’ that is afraid to be seen, it’s another part all together. Your inner kid knows how shine and shine BIG, so it can just be as simple as listening in and following, and loving yourself enough to be seen, loving yourself enough to SEE yourself and
Ideas for coming out of Hiding this week:
1) Post on your website that you’re available for speaking, hiring, and anything else that you’re available for (dating possibly?? hehe)
2) Make a product you’ve created ‘ON SALE’ for a limited time, or have it in a shopping cart on your site.
3) Host an event that you lead to share your message or something you’re passionate about
4) Make a list of things you’ve been wanting to do, but havn’t been doing because you’re waiting…. ( for another person, for more money etc) and start doing them
5) Get on the online dating site you’ve been thinking about getting on
6) Go somewhere where there are lots of people alone, and ENJOY it
7) Go to that group or class you’ve been wanting to go to
8) Call that person you keep getting the intuitive nudge to call
9)Get a new haircut that feels more YOU- NOW
10) Hire a stylist to help you clean out your closet and get a new wardrobe
What will you do? I wanna know! Leave us a comment!
